Medieval Bird Seed Holder

Medieval to Post Medieval lead alloy container. Some decoration is visible
along the outside edge of the containers rim. Containers such as these are
thought to have been vessels to hold water, or seeds for a caged bird.
Another suggestion is that they were used as holy water holders.

We were all very excited when this ring was found, some thinking
it could be 18th century. However it turns out to be modern, with
"silver" engraved under the bezel. Never mind still a nice find.
